Slack is a great way to organize communication on a large scale. Employees can easily chat one-on-one, while also being broken up into client projects and large groups.

Furthermore, Quickbooks seamlessly connects your email to the app, allowing you to send reports, invoices and other transactions over a secure company network.


Evernote is the perfect way to seamlessly create, organize and share meeting notes, ideas, to-do lists and much more. It also uses a complicated combination of firewalls, VPNs and load balancers to protect user data.
